Darian Sanayei hasn’t had an ideal winter’s preparation coming into the 2019 season. Not only has he recently just got back on the bike after a serious injury but he’s also been battling with Epstein Barr virus since December.

Despite the struggles, Sanayei showed a lot of fight in Argentina and finished twelfth in the first moto. However, he had nothing left for the second moto which led to a big crash. But the good news is he hasn’t injured himself as a result of the crash.

Steve Dixon posted the following message on social media:

“Well we knew it would be a tough one for Darian this weekend but thankfully he got through unscathed. Those close to Darian will know he has been fighting the Epstein Barr virus since being diagnosed in December, so with not even a full motor under his belt or more than a few hours of testing before the crate left we came here not knowing how it would turn out, well Darian toughed it out through the weekend showing good speed Saturday and pulled out of the qualifying race with some slight bogging issues and to save energy. Today we saw a great effort for 12th in race one, but Darian was done, the medics gave him the ok to race but he had no energy and crashed hard but with no injuries as such. He will recoup in USA for a week or so. A great well done to Gustavo for two 16th. Onto Matterley next, know ever said racing was easy! But it’s a long season”.
